Hi my family has a alot of photos they took over the years. Since we always put our photos in storage bins in our basements. The photos seem ok. But was reading article online tonight. About protecting your photos. I also try to put them in some kind of photo album weather it be samll one or big one. But after reading the article it says not to put in the basement because of tempature and mice or insects getting to them. Well we have ours in the basement in a couple of storage binds. Since we haven't got alot of room to put things. One time we were cleaning out stuff in the basement and my parents and I came arcoss photos that did not fade or surffer any damage. We still have some in a closet in the basement and the another day. I look at them and all of them seem like in good caution and not fading. Even the old photo album my dad made of all the photos he took in the 1980s are fine. I even found couple old photos of me as a little guy during my perschool days the other day. It was in a envelope with my name on it. The pictures are in good caution can still see the people in it has not turn all yellow or worn. They were in a old cardboard box with some papers my parents kept. I was just wondering because most people don't have alot of room in their house and the basement is like a storage area for most. Like my family. Plus, we now have all my grandmothers photos. We had them up here in my room but since I have such a small room. I decided to put all grandma's photos in a storge bin I got from wal mart and put them in the basement in the room I plan on moving down in that my dad build few years back. To give me some more space. Sorry if it sounds stupid but just wondering where all of you store your family photos if you don't have room?
